If you have an attitude of faith, then you are continually looking upward for guidance. You'll keep your eyes on Jesus. Practically, how do you keep your eyes on Jesus? Through fellowship with Him. Simply by praying and keeping your heart open to Him on a daily basis. (Not just on a Sunday basis - a daily basis!)

If you keep yourself aware of the presence of God, then you'll be more in tune with His prompting and you'll be more confident taking action! You'll be walking the same path many of the most successful people of God throughout the ages have walked. You'll be walking by faith!

That is why I have a really hard time understanding people who say they don't believe in "that faith stuff." The Scripture says plainly enough, "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him" (Heb. 11:6).

So if faith pleases God then what does lack of faith do? Well, I guess there is only one thing it can do - it displeases God. Now that's strong, I know. But what many people who disregard faith are really saying is that they don't believe in pleasing God. And, to me, that simply means that if they are flatly refusing to please God, then they are living in disobedience to His Word. Whew! Strong, huh?

I believe that there is a reason for people vocally attacking faith. Of course, the devil is blinding their eyes to the truth because he doesn't want them to use the force of faith. But I want you to understand why Christians who don't use their faith always seem to be the ones who attack those of us who do. The reason is simple but true: they aren't comfortable in the presence of God.

There, I've said it! Whenever I say this in a church meeting, people get real quiet. And they should. Contemplating what you are doing within your own life is good. Checking yourself to see if you have attacked or ignored faith is good. It's the only way you'll ever even notice what you're really doing.
